Ultra-Phos is a new aluminium based adsorber which safely removes phosphates and humic substances from the aquarium. Unwanted Algae growth will be stopped and corals will show their natural colours!
The pollutants are bound to the surface of Ultra Phos and will not be released again. Ultra Power-Phos can maintain very low nutrient concentrations in your tank. Ultra-Phos is extremely strong and only suitable for tanks with a high nutrient load.
Dosing Recommendations: Please do all changes in the aquarium carefully and slowly. Do not overdose.
Start with 50 grams per 200L (50 gal) of water.
After 14 days the dose can be increased up to 100 grams per 200L (50 gal) of water.
Check phosphate concentration regularly with reliable test kits, e.g. with the FaunaMarin PO4-Test.
Additional Instructions: In the event the PO4 level starts to increase again, replace used Ultra Phos from system with fresh Ultra Phos. Do not use more than 100 grams per 200L (50 gal). We recommend placing the material in a filter chamber with high flow to provide maximum performance. In the case of extremely low PO4 levels and non-detectable Nitrate levels Ultra-Phos should not be used.
For a slower adsorption rinse the filled filter bag with osmotic water before use. To obtain best results and maximize adsorption efficiency, place the material between two layers of filter wool or use a fluidized-bed-reactor.
Using Ultra-Phos in a fluidized bed reactor will drastically increase the products efficiency, therefore the amount of Ultra-Phos should be reduced by 50% and carefully control the flow through the filter.
In tanks with high organic load (yellowish water) it may take a little while before the PO4 reduction becomes measurable. This is a normal process, you will notice the color change of the Ultra-Phos from white to yellow and the much clearer water in the aquarium. Ultra-Phos will become warm, when first immersed in water. Do not rinse the material.
Safety Information: Do not inhale or swallow. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away from children. Not to be used in tanks with animals that will be used for food production.
